Create Your Catch-M
“To often we underestimate the power of a smile which has the potential to turn a life around.”
CATCH-M is your Magical, Mystical, Magnificent Smile that comes all the way up from your belly, through your chest, & shines from your face who you are.
Haitian Children, who lost homes & family in The 2010 Earthquake, are having fun with the CATCH-M creations as they are each consider the importance of believing in themselves and their dreams.
“The—SHHH—Secret to living the life of your dreams is found in the power of your smile.”
So do it! Create your CATCH-M, your MAGICAL, MYSTICAL, MAGNIFICENT SMILE!
Know the stars above you, around you, & within you continually reflect back your smile to remind you to believe in yourself, in others, & all that is!
To draw your “Big Belly Smile”
Pick any medium or material you’d like— Socks, shirts, hats, shoes, paper, plates, paint, pens, sidewalk chalk, sticks & dirt, or whatever you think.
TAKE YOUR SMILE ON A CATCH-M ADVENTURE:
On a school field trip, out to dinner, to school, a family vacation, or wherever you choose! Remind others on your journey to celebrate their smiles too, take pictures with your CATCH-M’s, & journal as you do!
A dear friend surprised me at her school visit with a matching CATCH-M shirt.
- On your CATCH-M ADVENTURE build a LIVE BIG community:
Build by finding as many ways in a day to catch CATCH-M together by sharing smiles!
- Send your CATCH-M on his own ADVENTURE: Mail him to friends, relatives, or places around the world. Have them take photos of your CATCH-M experiencing new things. Put up a map & place pens where ever your CATCH-M has been — It is a great way to celebrate our way around this amazing planet!
- On your CATCH-M ADVENTURE: Notice every where you go, any place you see someone’s CATCH-M & be encouraged! Know you are not alone. You have help from above, from within, & from other heroes who are out there fighting for their dreams too!
- Have fun naming the different smiles you see on your journey: My children have seven different kind—1. laugh-out-loud smiles 2. polite smiles 3. we have fun plan smiles 4. talking about their friends smiles 5. laughing at themselves smiles 6. uncomfortable smiles 7. dreams do come true smiles
- Watch & see that your smile is the invitation CATCH-M needs to WHOOSH into your life & help turn any hardship or heartache to hope!

My family with our CATCH-M MURAL in the background. We made these CATCH-M’s for DREAM BIG’s release in 2017. Here, we made new CATCH-M’s on plates for LOVE BIG’s release in 2019. It’s fun to see how different everyone’s smile can be.
Let’s all start celebrating our SMILES & BELIEVE — so that CATCH-M can “WHOOSH!” into each of our lives & “WHAM!” light the gift of stars within our hearts too! The animals named this thrill: “CATCHING CATCH-M” – “LIGHTING THE DIVINE SPARK IN OUR HEART” – “FINDING THE TREASURE IN OUR CHEST”
